It's Terry Funk and Stan Hansen beating the hell out of each other, you can't get anything better than this. I recommend it, it's on youtube I think.

I was wondering, does anyone have any links to a site with ROH matches? If you want to keep it private, just send me a PM, it'd be very useful. I might have some on my old computer, but it is a pain to hook it up.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

This thread can't die. I so badly wished this thread was stickied. So many great lists and matches that people probably haven't seen.

Even if you just post your favorite matches and give a little review. That would be great.When I'm bored I go to this thread and see what there is out there that I need to add to my "To watch list". If someone was trying to get into wrestling I would pull a list of matches straight from this thread. You can find one amazing match which will lead you to another which will lead you to another.

You have a swank Finlay match list. Mid-South and Memphis list. Great stuff to delve into you. I use to Google "5 Star Matches" and always would go to Meltzer's list because that's all I had. This thread proves there is so much more. I wish there was something like this for me years ago when I was looking for great matches to watch.

Ric Flair vs Terry Funk ~ Great American Bash 1989

I think i'm the only wrestling fan who might prefer Flair vs Funk from GAB '89 over their I Quit match from Clash in the same year. There is something about that match igniting the feud that I thought was stronger than when it finished. Flair returns from Funk's assault at WrestleWar so he's boiling. Funk is downright insane so there is the ingredients for a hot and wild World Championship match right there. I mean, man, all of it is done perfectly. Ahhh I love it. You know it rules right from the very start. Funk exits the ring trying to stall and jaw with fans. Flair removes the robe and blasts Funk to get it going. That's unlike Flair. This one was different than what Ric had done in his program with Steamboat. That was based purely on wrestling only. This one was based on revenge and brawling. That transition for Flair was unbelievable. Especially when he not only excelled in this feud, but got it to be AS good in quality as his phenomenal wreslting matches. Funk was semi-retired and announcing right prior to this feud. He jumps into a major program and shows why he is SO DAMN GOOD by being one of the best antagonists here. So crazy. So unpredictable. You weren't sure what he'd do to defeat Flair. He took him out once and he probably could do it again. Add in the trusty branding iron and then the match takes a new turn into very bloody territory. Which only ups the match to a different level of wow. Then the aftermath of it, oh my science, YES. As soon as Flair catches Funk in the small package counter, Muta hits the ring and ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE. Even the immediate aftermath was fantastic. Early sign of the Flair/Sting team and subsequently the Four Horsemen entry/big 1990 program.

Don't know if anyone else would rank this one at the full 5 stars like myself, but it's always been one I thought that hit that level. Personal favorite if there ever was one. My second favorite NWA/WCW Flair match from 1989 behind the obvious, and top of the 5 star wrestling list, two out of three falls match vs Steamboat. I'm sure most have...but watch this if you haven't. Or if it has been awhile, then give it another go. On Flair's Definitive DVD so it's available to own. On youtube as well. WATCH~!

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I prefer the GAB match over their "I Quit" as well.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists



I Quit might have been trailblazing for the given gimmick, but it's not the best of their encounters. GAB is.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Watched Hansen/Kobashi. Ever since I first watched I thought one of two things - either this match was overrated, or it was me. It was definitely me. I don't think this is five stars, the 93 match of the year or even still as good as Hansen/Kawada, but I don't know what I missed the first time. Just a mind-blowing match; has to be the best Kobashi singles behind 1/20/97 right? Anything I'm forgetting? #2 singles for Hansen behind Kawada 2/28/93 I'm thinking, too. The finish gave me goosebumps.
